Overview

Get a taste of Japanese food and culture during this 3-hour walking tour of Tokyo’s Shibuya district. Escape the tourist hordes as you eat like a Japanese local, sampling favorites like ‘takoyaki’ (octopus balls), ‘okonomiyaki’ (savory egg pancakes), Kobe beef skewers and more in the area’s off-the-beaten path eateries and hangouts. Toast your adventure, and new friends, with an included glass of beer, ‘shochu’ (rice liquor) or soft drinks.
  • See Shibuya, one of Tokyo’s most popular neighborhoods, through the eyes of a local
  • Visit off-the-beaten-path restaurants and try regional foods
  • Explore the hidden back alleys and elevated eateries of Shibuya
  • Sample takoyaki (octopus balls), okonomiyaki (savory egg pancakes), Sushi, and a traditional dessert
  • This tour is very family friendly and is conveniently offered at three different times a day
Get together with your guide in the early evening in Shibuya's Hachiko Square. You’ll spend the next 3 hours getting a locals-only taste of Tokyo’s hidden food scene.

Skip the overpriced tourist eateries and instead follow your guide inside some of Shibuya’s wealth of side-street restaurants favored by Tokyo residents. As you hop between food stops you’ll sample a variety of Japanese delicacies from across the country, including Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki, Osaka-style takoyaki, seven different kinds of sushi, Wagyu Beef or Kobe beef ‘yakitori’ (barbecue) skewers, and even some taiyaki dessert. You’ll even get to wander through the labyrinth of food items for sale at a “depachika” (underground food hall). One included beverage will help you wash it all down.

Finish your food exploration back at your original starting point with a full stomach and a newfound appreciation for Japan’s one-of-a-kind gastronomic culture.

An excellent way to dive into the local food and entertainment culture. We would never have experienced these various foods and places around town without Kate, our guide. Sooo much better than the other tours we booked while visiting Tokyo. Very personal, very informative. HIGHLY recommend

We booked this tour to experience the Shibuya neighborhood, and Kate fully delivered. Not only did we eat delicious food, but she gave history of the neighborhood and cultural highlights as well. Kate was joined by Carole, whom she was training, and they both were very knowledgeable and fun. We definitely felt we got more than our money's worth with the experience they gave us. Kate also gave very helpful recommendations for after the conclusion of the tour. Thanks again Kate!Stephanie and Brian

We enjoyed this tour so much that my husband booked the same tour a couple months later when his friends were in town visiting. The guide was knowledgable and took us to the best spots around Shibuya.

As other reviewers have said, you'd be really full by the end of the tour. That's why we came prepared and brought some food containers along so that we can pack any unfinished food and enjoy them the following day. While I'm more of a meat lover, the highlight of the tour for me turned out to be the sushi stop. Definitely the best sushi I've ever had! The kobe beef skewers didn't disappoint either. I took one star off as something I would change is the dessert, as I would think there are better options out there which I would be more curious to try than the custard-filled pancakes we had on this tour instead.

Had a great time on this tour. It covers a fairly small area but isn't short on food!
